Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

Traveling fun!

I had a very pleasant vacation recently, which left me with some fun on my drive home from the airport. Thanks to alex and kelly and family for having me over!!

Some things that stick with you, after hearing them many times over the span of about a week:

I got the "it-tups!" (thanks littleM, for that one!) while driving home, the juice from the apple I ate had something to do with it, I think!

Then I noticed a sign. An unusual one...add it to my collection of fun signs! It was unusual on its own, but then it was more, because I read it as LittleA might have. The sign said "Opened" for business or something like that....and I read Open-ed-ed. She's a mighty good reader, that LittleA, but she's still learning some of the rules of English!

I enjoyed spending time in Manitoba, enjoyed the cuddles, the chats, the outings, the kitchen fun, celebrating birthdays and other minor holidays. I look forward to going back.

It's fun how people and things they do stick with you. HUGS!

Finding things...

It's a little early in the season to be finding things, I think.

Usually the melting of snow and the finding of random, sodden objects doesn't begin for at least another month or two.

Fun things found in the melting snow- mail (addressed to a co-worker) found next to a parking thawed/dried out ok, a windshield scraper- found in a bank at the edge of a parking lot, and last, and certainly not least, gravel, all over my strip of grass beside my driveway. I'm going to have to get better at shoveling without digging deep. I'll need to get my rake out or something and toss all those stones back onto the driveway. Anyone with young kids want to come over to help? :)

It seems too early for all of these finds. I am not silly enough to think winter is over. I'm sure there will be plenty of shoveling left for me to work on my technique!

What fun have you found in the melting snow?
(Thanks for singing with me Bec!)
Til next time...
